NHS England and NHS Improvement, NHS Wales and NHSBSA have been working closely together to make improvements to the ESR exit questions. From October 2021 the ESR exit questionnaire will be updated with a new set of questions drawing on themes from the NHS Staff Survey.
The update will allow the employee to self-report their reasoning for leaving and there will be a free text box where they can include what, if anything, would have kept them in the organisation.
You can find out more in our ESR exit questionnaire document (PDF: 594KB).
Further details and FAQs will be available soon. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
